Stratford,Leyton and Barking 2007-12
Over the five years run up to the 2012 Olympics youth and community groups in three host boroughs discussed their attitudes to the advent of the Games, and their hopes and fears for its impact on the people of East London. An ethnographic study of the workforce who constructed the Olympic Park was also undertaken. This material forms the core of On the Wrong Side of the Track: East London and the post Olympics Lawrence and Wishart 2013. The learning resources linked to this book are available to be downloaded from the section of this website dedicate to East London and the 2012 Olympics.
